A New Song: Glimpses of the Grace Journey--an anthology of essays, poems, stories and photos celebrating God's grace on life's journey
I am so honored to be one of the contributing authors of A New Song: Glimpses of the Grace Journey: an anthology of essays, poems, stories and photos celebrating God's grace on life's journey. My story is entitled, Comfort Measures Only. It is the story of the closing of the final chapter of my mother’s life following a three-year decline mentally and physically due to dementia. It was also the closing of a chapter in my own life, as part of the “sandwich” generation—caring for an elderly relative while raising my own children, as our youngest child was graduating from high school and moving from our home to attend college.
Following the example of the psalmist in Psalm 40, the writers for this collection have remembered their histories with God, describing His rescue, their salvation, His comfort in a time of crisis, or leading when they needed a new direction. We hope that our collective hymn of praise will be an encouragement to you.
